RUISBURO: Saverio Rosi, Martijn Comes & Martin Reints
Sunday, August 28, 20:30 DE RUIMTE, AMSTERDAM
Martijn Comes and Saverio Rosi will present the result of their week-long residency, in the form of a concert and presentation, inspired by the city of Amsterdam. To top this off, Martin Reints will read from his own poetry.
The jury composed by Alessio Ballerini, Gianmarco del Re, Matteo Meda, Sabrina Maggiori and Michela Acquili, selected the winning track among a group of other 4, which made it to the final cut too. Given the high artistic content, all these finalist tracks have been selected to be included in a digital release, which can be freely downloaded at Creative Commons, by the label Oak Edition.
Jury’s reasons behind winner election
“An Early Oxidation” by Saverio Rosi is a fascinating and mysterious track. This gaunt and minimalist record demonstrates a remarkable ability to catch the essential, managing to create a destabilizing and unsettling atmosphere, acting on listener’s perceptions, and playing on frequencies in an evocative way. The track is composed by a barely sketched musical instrumentation, perfectly balancing and melting with the final composition, never overpowering it.
